Don't Question This Man's Patriotism!

Whatever you do, don't you dare question Robert Jensen's patriotism. He loves America just as much as any red-neck, homophobic yahoo who has a "traditional" view of patriotism.

Just because Professor Jensen says:

* "The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing. . . ."

* "as a U.S. citizen, I welcome the U.S. defeat . . ."

* "When we admit defeat and pull out -- not if, but when -- the fate of Iraqis will depend in part on whether the United States makes good on legal and moral obligations to pay reparations and allows international institutions to aid in creating a truly sovereign Iraq. . . ."

* "The planet's resources do not belong to the United States. The century is not America's. We own neither the world nor time. And if we don't give up the quest--if we don't find our place in the world instead of on top of the world--there is little hope for a safe, sane and sustainable future."

Keep your neocon grumbling to yourself; this man is a patriot!
